New Trailer and Posters of Dylan Thomas and Kaya Scodelario in The Maze Runner
Wes Ball's adaptation of the popular YA Sci-Fi novel, The Maze Runner, received a great deal of enthusiasm during Comic Con, despite the film's star letting slip a significant spoiler at the film's Hall H panel. Now, 20th Century Fox have released a new trailer for the dystopian thriller which delves a little deeper into the terrifyingly bleak world created by James Dashner's novel, and you know what? This movie is starting to look really, really good.
Starring Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario and Will Poulter, The Maze Runner is set in a bleak future and follows Thomas, a teenager who finds himself deposited in a strange place known as the glade. Thomas has no recollection of how he came to be in the glade, but he soon discovers his situation is not a unique one when he meets up with more than 50 other teenagers who have banded together and labelled themselves 'Gladers'. If the Gladers are to defeat the giant, walled maze that encapsulates them, a comatosed girl who appears with a mysterious note, could be their only hope.
To many, The Maze Runner won't seem all that dissimilar to other young adult sci-fi tales like The Hunger Games and Divergent, but what is perhaps most exciting about Ball's movie is the young and incredibly talented cast it has assembled. Dylan O'Brien may be the star of the show, but it's the trio of British actors in Will Poulter (We're The Millers), Kaya Scodelario (Moon) and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones) that we're most excited to see in action.
Along with the trailer, 20th Century Fox has also released a bevy of posters for the September release. You can check them out below:
